Joyous Red and Christmas Time…

West Australian Red-flowering Gums West Australian Red-flowering Gums

The colour red has become strongly associated with Christmas. Here in Australia, the traditional Christmas Bush is a rusty-red, and of course, Santa is always dressed in red…

So how fortunate it is that these magnificent West Australian Red-flowering Gums bloom at this time of year. Right now, where I live (in suburban Sydney, Australia), they are at their peak, and don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them?

So here’s another photo of these glorious flowers.

Merry Christmas!

    Very festive. With the warm (but not that all unusual) TX Gulf Coast weather some of our tropicals are blooming again.
    May your Christmas be merry and bright!
